Biography

So she paints

My paintings are those of a fervent.
From a believer to an invisible who escapes reason and yet influences us.
No dogmas or religious books.
The color is an untamed and sacred animal that comes to lie on the canvas,
to give oneself and to drink oneself in the sight of those who contemplate it.
The spontaneity is invited on the surface, the red lies on the blue which touches
the idea of a yellow or the desire for a green.
The meditative state transcends the instinctive impulses.
The colors are sovereign, inspired, Life.
The gesture is caress, scratch, imprint, prayer.
No need to be on your knees, hands clasped to believe.
I am standing as I paint.
I like to be able to question myself in front of the canvas inhabited by a whole people of colors in movement: is it madness? Is this inspiration? Is this creation? Is it pure consciousness? Is it healing?
What Source am I connected to when I paint?

My painting is a theater of cosmic energy and matter, a scene of the intimate, unpredictable, sensitive and poetic life.

Colors have laid souls.
